September 8–October 8

Meriam Library, CSU, Chico (directions)
Tues.–Sat. 11 am–3 pm

Dragons: Tails of Myths and Meaning

Dragons lurk in the collective imaginations of many cultures throughout the world. Some dragon stories embody the most terrible and horrifying aspects of humanity, while others represent the highest ideals of society. From the Nordic epic of Beowulf to the mythic Aztec powers of Quetzalcoatl, the dragon motif captures cultural values and traditions in one recognizable, yet changeable, symbol. The tales of fiery, flying serpents and the stories of wise water-dwelling creatures span human history, representing both the darkest fears and the sincerest hopes for all peoples. The exhibit will feature pieces from the Bob Benner Dragon Collection and interactive and educational displays for dragon lovers of all ages.

Artist Talk: Thursday, October 13, 6:30 pm, Recital Hall, followed by a reception in the University Art Gallery.
The artist team Walczak & Heiss makes work that responds to the unique characteristics of a particular place.

In SHAKER, a magical yet seldom-seen nut-harvesting machine becomes a sculptural form filling the gallery. As visitors walk through the space, the machine is at first unrecognizable, perversely distorted through digital manipulation. Yet, from one singular vantage point, the piece pulls into focus. In this spot, perception and function collapse as the shaker defies its grand scale to crack a single nut.
Free and open to the public.
